Thyroid cancer - Interesting fact
Thyroid cancer is unique among cancers. In fact, thyroid cells are unique among all cells of the human body. They are the only cells that have the ability to absorb iodine. Iodine is required for thyroid cells to produce thyroid hormone, so they absorb it out of the bloodstream and concentrate it inside the cell.

Most thyroid cancer cells retain this ability to absorb and concentrate iodine. This provides a perfect "chemotherapy" strategy. Radioactive Iodine is given to the patient with thyroid cancer after their cancer has been removed. If there are any normal thyroid cells or thyroid cancer cells remain in the patient's body (and any thyroid cancer cells retaining this ability to absorb iodine), then these cells will absorb and concentrate the radioactive "poisonous" iodine. Since all other cells of our bodies cannot absorb the toxic iodine, they are unharmed. The thyroid cancer cells, however, will concentrate the poison within themselves and the radioactivity destroys the cell from within. No sickness. No hair loss. No nausea. No diarrhea. No pain.

So, ironically, the treatment for thyroid cancer is radioactive iodine.

okay, and then this what...KILLS the thyroid...correct?

my mom went through this and she has to take synthetic thyroid medication since she no longer technically has one...

i hope you aren't trying to say this is actually beneficial........

No, the irony is that radioactive iodine can cause thyroid cancer, yet is also used in treating it after the cancer is removed.

Re: Thyroid cancer - Interesting fact
Each person should have an iodine store in their whole body of 1500mg, iodine should be in every cell of your body. For women the highest concentrations are in your thyroid, breasts, uterus and ovaries, and pancreas. For men the highest concentrations are in the thyroid, prostate, and pancreas.

So what is a daily serving of iodine? The RDA states that you need at LEAST 150mcg or .15mg, however this is only to prevent extreme stupidity and goiter. The amount your body requires to function properly is at LEAST 12.5mg or 12,500mcg per DAY for adults. Wow what a big difference that is! The reason being that you need at least 5mg for your thyroid and women need 5mg for breasts while men need about 5mg for their prostate and 2.5mg for the rest of your body. Isn't that what Iodized salt is for? Just to reach the RDA you would need to consume 20 teaspoons of iodized salt per day! Unless you are or intend to eat lots of seaweed, sea veggies or seafood you will need an iodine supplement. Fortunately, there is one that gives you the optimal daily dose in one tablet, Iodoral.

You're probably thinking that it sounds like waaay too much iodine to be taking, what about iodine toxicity? First off, back in the early 1900's iodine was considered the universal cure, whatever your problem was you were first prescribed high doses of iodine

=====
The benefits of iodine in the body are far reaching. Oddly enough, it is the least understood of all the essential trace elements.

This is the safest of all the essential trace elements which can be administered in large amounts when in an inorganic nonradioactive form.

Iodine is stored throughout your entire body - the skin, teeth, nails, all the organs, and bones.

When you have the correct amount of iodine in your body, you are able to:

Maintain your energy level all day
Maintain your weight
Live without aches and pains
Maintain a cheerful and uplifted attitude
Have a clear memory
Able to tolerate cold
Have normal bowel movements;
Have full and shiny hair; and
Obtain restful night at sleep
Have normal skin and supple fingernails

Me thinks you should double check your ass-u-mptions. btw i know several people who have thyroid issues, some with hashimoto's who've had their thyroid removed and now are utterly dependent tri-iodo-thyronine for the rest of their life, which is not so simple to dose and severely knocks them around daily, particularly in the aged. secondly the parathyroid is also removed in a thyrodectomy this produces parathyroid hormone which regulates calcium levels in the blood, which not only can cause severe calification which will put you in a wheel chair and then make you paraplegic all the while in extreme spastic pain as your spine calcifies cutting off the nerves (ironically the person im discussing hated stoners intensely her whole life and now would benefit from cannabis immensely).

others suffered from hypothyroidism but as it was not a lost cause entirely they chose to treat it by supporting their thyroid, in particular they take one or two drops of KI solution in a glass of water regularly, and find that this can greatly ameliorate their hypothyroidism. an option almost never proposed by doctors who like parasites have a conflict of interest with big pharma which makes a _tidy_ sum dispensing T3 to those convinced of the fraudulent "complete cure" they sell them on.

Fluorid stops thyroid working. Think of your drink water and bath water...
